When it comes to weight loss, people prefer to use not only effective, but also safe anti-obesity drugs, such as Evekeo. Doctors and patients often choose Evekeo because this drug:
- suppresses appetite;
- promotes rapid weight loss.
Evekeo is a sympathomimetic amine that causes the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. They affect the hypothalamic feeding center and reduce appetite.
Evekeo is a prescription drug, produced in tablets (5 mg or 10 mg). They are used only as a short-term care in weight loss combined with:
Evekeo tablets contain an active substance Amphetamine Sulfate. Like all Amphetamine-based stimulant drugs, Evekeo has the potential to induce mental or physical dependence. Therefore, in order to stably burn excess fats without negative consequences for the body, it is necessary:
- use a single dose of 5mg-10 mg;
- take Evekeo 30-60 minutes before meal;
- not to increase the maximum daily dose of 30 mg.
Unlike other appetite suppressants, for example Adipex, Evekeo tablets can be used by patients under 18 years of age. The FDA approved this drug in 2012 to treat exogenous obesity in patients aged 12 years and older.
Evekeo can be used by patients under 12 years of age, but not for obesity treatment. In addition to obesity, this CNS stimulator has two more indications:
- ADHD – in children aged 3 years and older;
- narcolepsy – in patients aged 6 years and older.
During Evekeo use, various side effects may occur, serious ones as well. The most common of them are as follows:
- abdominal discomfort;
- sexual problems in men;
- problems with falling asleep and maintaining sleep;
- dizziness or headache.
This is not a complete list of possible adverse reactions. When Evekeo is prescribed to patients with ADHD or narcolepsy, a decrease in appetite and weight loss is added to the list of frequent side effects.
Read the leaflet before you or your child starts using Evekeo. Every time you buy Evekeo at a pharmacy, learn the leaflet again, a new information can be there.
